ADEPT Hybrid lead-acid and lithium-ion ESS to power GS Yuasa’s UK battery plant

Renewable power developer Infinite has launched a project that combines wind turbines and solar photovoltaic with a hybrid lead-acid and lithium energy storage system.

The project began with the installation of a 1MWh rooftop solar system at Japanese-headquartered GS Yuasa’s factory in south Wales where the lead-acid battery is made. 

An assembly line is due to be installed at the Welsh manufacturing site to produce lithium-ion battery modules.

The Energy Centre project will link renewables with GS Yuasa’s ADEPT ESS that was developed alongside the University of Sheffield and Innovate UK.

Shaun Gardner, managing director, GS Yuasa Manufacturing UK, said the unique combination of lithium and lead-acid batteries allowed for the storage of energy generated by either solar or wind to be used at a later date.

Last August, GS Yuasa delivered a 100kW hybrid system to Portsmouth International Port as part of the Port Energy Systems Optimisation (PESO) project. 

The battery system will be used to charge electric cars and peak shifting services as the port demonstrates how it can operate as a smart energy network.

GS Yuasa has received 2.5 million ($3.4 million) in funding from the Welsh Government to help it increase production of its batteries, which include valve regulated lead-acid.
